    hard foam letters for exterior use?

    About six months ago I had found a web site for lettering for the outside of my building that I had to paint the letters and then they stuck on with adhesive.they were @ $5.00 apiece for 12" tall and 1 1/2" thick now the only ones I can find are @$15.00does anyone here make or know of a manufacturer of these letters at a reasonable price? thanks for any help

    It's called sign foam if that helps your search.
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    If you're handy witha Roto-Zip or a jig saw you can buy a sheet of 2" foam (4' by 8') for about $40 and make your own. Just remember to spray them witha UV blocker if they are going to be outside.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    They need to be cut by a computer guided router or you'll look like Fred Sanford.

    I believe it is called Gator Foam or something like that. Used it years ago. All different varieties of it, some you paint, some have a hard finished to surface, and others.
